Watch the Arenasaurus online guitar lesson by Jeff Scheetz from 50 Blues Rock Rhythms You MUST Know
The big arena - the big hair - the big amps. Here we get a taste of that - especially if you crank on an extremely distorted sound. With a little cleaner sound it has a bit more of a "Pettyesque" vibe. But there is actually more to learn from this riff than how to rock the suburbs. This riff is using three simple chords over and over - but we keep it sounding interesting because of the use of inversions. It actually sounds like there is more going on than there is - so just like the walls of fake speaker cabinets lining the arena stages of days gone by - we too are creating a bit of an illusion. So dig into these inversions!
